Another effective home remedy for heart palpitations is cinnamon. It contains numerous chemicals and nutrients, including manganese and potassium that are good for the heart. It helps improve blood flow to the heart, prevent excess buildup of low-density lipoproteins (LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol) and reduce high blood pressure.
- Mix 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder in a glass of warm water and drink it.
- Alternatively, mix together 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon powder and honey and have it.
Follow either of these remedies once daily for a few days.
For heart palpitations due to panic attacks or anxiety, valerian is a good remedy, according to herbalists. The relaxing effect of valerian helps calm you and restore your normal heartbeat. In addition, it promotes sleep.
- Add 10 drops of valerian tincture to a glass of water and drink it for quick relief.
- You can also take valerian supplements for a few weeks as a preventive measure. Consult a doctor for the proper dosage and do not take this supplement for longer than a few weeks.
Note: This herb is not recommended for pregnant women.
